GM production to possibly halt in October

Staff report

LORDSTOWN

General Motors Lordstown employees were told the weeks of Oct. 20 and Oct. 27 will be qualifying layoff weeks, which are subject to change.

Glenn Johnson, president of United Auto Workers Local 1112, said the reason is for “plant rearrangement and product work that needs to be tied in.”

The layoff also will affect UAW Local 1714, said Robert Morales, union president.

Employees in both unions have worked Saturday shifts and have more coming in September and October, but those also are subject to change.

“Everything is good,” Johnson said. “We are smiling. We are making money, and we are making [Chevrolet] Cruzes, and we couldn’t be happier.”

Employees will be able to qualify for unemployment for two weeks they could potentially be off.
